Golden Compass Script News

June 28, 2004 at 9:42 pm by Tehanu  - 

In the same way we’re keeping an eye on the Narnia films, we’re following the “His Dark Materials” film project because we know it’s of interest to many LOTR readers. Yesterday, industry insiders leaked news that Tom Stoppard’s script for “The Golden Compass” had been “junked,” and director Chris Weitz [“About a Boy”] was tipped to take over on the writing. Industry sources described him as a “huge dork-level fan of the books [who] wants to do them justice.” He’s won praise for his understanding and direction of the boy character in “About a Boy.” The ability to write convincingly about teenagers would be an advantage in “The Golden Compass.”
